Angel of Grief Monument Statue
After the 1894 original by William Wetmore Story, in the Protestant Cemetery, Rome
From her delicate wings and arms to the tendrils at the nape of her neck, the detail of this exclusive, designer resin Victorian angel is amazing. Inspired by the monument that American poet and sculptor William Wetmore Story designed as an homage to his wife Emelyn, our desktop version features a raised lettered message reminding you to celebrate life.
The inscription reads: “The bud was spread to show the rose our Saviour smiled the bud was closed. Anon”

Desktop: 3½"Wx7½"Dx7½"H. 2 lbs.
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely Statue I ordered this for my sister, since she had always admired the life-sized tombstone of this sculpture in a cemetery in St. Louis. The sculpture is lovely, and the desk-top one did not disappoint. My only issue is that it looked as if the arm draped across the top had been repaired. It wasn't obvious enough for me to return it, but it still looked as if it had been broken at one time. My sister loved the statue and that is what matters! I have ordered from this website since then and probably will in the future. They have a tremendous selection of unusual products. January 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it I bought this after the death of my son..what a fitting angel... August 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I am happy that this is a replica of William Story's Angel of Grief. There are so many different copies of the original tombstone sculpted by William Story for his wife. Only wish it had the inscriptions on it that you would see at the Protestant cemetery in Rome, Italy. I have collected miniature angels for nearly 50 years. I am thrilled to have this angel and she elicits various personal emotions each time I look at her. July 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Provided solace to a grieving parent This is such a beautiful statue. I have seen it as a grave monument. They both reduce me to tears! April 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Why I purchased Angel of Grief I have a poster "Angel of Grief" and when I saw Toscano's Angel of Grief, it matched the poster perfectly. It's a beautiful statue. I just feel it's a bit over-priced. January 18, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's ok The quality seemed good, but mine was on the yellow side, the image looks more like the classic beige/white marble look. So I found that to be misleading. I also pictured the image to be a little bet bigger then it actually is. November 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love the reverence of this sculper! I have recently bought one of these last month. We had a death in the family and I got it instead of flowers. So many peope wanted to know where i found it, and talked about the beauty and meaning of this Angel of Grief. Now, I need one for my daughters memory in her garden outside. It gives me peace and consolation, and I needed the support this Angel gives me! Thank you, and God Bless you! June 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ok, but... Just. Don't. Blink. That is all I need to say to warn you. May 19, 2013
